Off work again...

Got the dumb ass Doctor to fill out my forms correctly. It took an hour and a half, and I pretty much had to explain every aspect of my job and how being one-armed impacted it, but I'm off work until I'm out of a sling. Yippee!
Not yippee for coming up with stupid people stories, though.... not til December, anyway.

Back to work, and not by choice...

So.... My Dr and his bitchy MA have now screwed up my leave of absence paperwork THREE times, and since our corporate whatever-their-titles-are in HR can't see that "OK to go back to work on 9/19 but don't drive in the sling you're wearing until 12/9 and don't use your left arm AT ALL until 12/9" just doesn't make sense. So, for the first time since surgery, I have had horrible pain - being in a sling while standing for 8 hrs makes you hurt from the ribs up, shoulders, arms, neck, upper back, you name it.
The incredibly stupid in this little rant? Surgeon, MA, HR person, and ME - for giving into the demand to go back!!!

How unprofessional....

So - I found a stupid thing that's non-pharmacy related to rant about. Sarah Palin. I had to walk out of my living room in the middle of the VP debate because her lack of professionalism is killing me! The "say it isn't so, Joe" comment, the "shout out to the 3rd graders" at the school her brother teaches in, the mispronunciation of the word "nuclear" multiple times... IF she and McCain win this election, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do NOT allow this woman to meet with foreign leaders!!!! She cannot even speak intelligently and relevantly during a campaign debate.
